Arab League Secretary General Nabil Al-Arabi left to Manama Saturday to participate in an international conference on the formation of Arab court for human rights, slated for Sunday. In statements to reporters upon departing Cairo Airport, Al-Arabi described the move as a major development.
He pointed that the Arab leaders have agreed on the formation of the court during their last summit in Kuwait and the court's charter has finished and will be put for discussion and deliberations before being reviewed and approved by the Arab foreign ministers council later.
He noted that over 300 Arab officials and international and Arab legal and human rights experts will contribute to the conference which is organized under the patronage of Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa. The conferees will thoroughly scrutinize the court's draft charter and proposed work mechanisms, he said.
